Technology that Keeps Our Employees and Communities Safe

Fleet telematics are used to monitor the driving of our technicians and identify areas in which additional training is needed to help ensure the safety of our technicians and other motorists on the roadways. Location monitoring and automatic notifications alerting our technicians of areas with high potential for crime help ensure they take every precaution to keep safe on job sites.
